Great pics! You all looked pretty dazed after it was all over. I got to the park just as everybody was getting off the train and eating cake.

I'm glad I didn't sign up for it at the Spring Fling, as I probably would have gotten stuck on an axle seat in the back and given up early. I'm waiting for the Mindbender marathon - THAT I could ride for hours in any seat!

30 hours? What the hell is that, a metric day?

30 hours for the 30th Anniversary of the coaster. Damn, with you being the "all knowing god of SFoG" I would have thought you knew that.

Great pics Tommy. I had time to recover as well and changed my mind also. I'd do it again in a heartbeat (minus the rain and bad brakes). I think I slept for 15 hours after I got to Kevins that afternoon. Sean slept for about that many as well.

Who knows what will happen when Mindbender turns 30...... Oh the visions in my head....

I can't see how the 7 did the whole 30 hours...I rode only the last 4 and I'm still feeling the side effects...

Still getting use of my AOLer-translator link, eh? After the mini-Mindbender marathon (MMM - patent pending) at the Spring Fling, I'm ready for the real thing!

I guess you can't detect a joke when you see one. Lighten up.

BTW, FreeFall is 20 this year... who wants to go 20 hours on it?

Could they keep Freefall running for 20 hours straight? I personally will not ride any more 1st gen freefalls after getting stuck on SFMM's for a long time at the top, only to be dropped without warning.

That's too bad for you. You probably have a tough time in school. In future posts I will use the pretty smilies so it will be easier for you, mmkay? I thought the whole idea of a "metric day" would have been the giveaway that I was fooling around.

^ Probably not.

GP, I hope you know that I was joking. I did see the joke there, and actually chuckled a bit. :)
